Theoretically any collapsible lens has an extra point (the bayonet fitting which locks the collapsible tube to the focusing mount) at which wear can occur, in addition to the cam at the back of the lens tube which runs on the rangefinder arm. However, with all the collapsible lens/Leica combinations I have owned (IIIa with Summar, IIIc with 3.5 Elmar, IIIf with Summitar, IIIf with Summicron, M3 with 2.8 Elmar, Reid 3 with f2 TTH), I have never known this to be a problem. If by some remote chance the lens is not locking properly when you pull it out and twist it, this will be immediately obvious. If not, I wouldn't worry about it and would simply use the lens!
